    I have mine plugged in, but the fans Are junk stock on the U3 I still Have Yet to perform the mod for the U3... Hopefully in the Start of 2018 when I have extra money sitting around :) Have u cleaned the Fans? as well as the Heatsinks? I mean it should be a given by how many times the system was opened but always worth a shot asking.

    The fans I usually clean with air pressure, I dismantle the base and give them air. I usually do it every 2 or 3 months

    I think you misunderstood me, I use the Google translator. I removed the 3 fans from the system, disassembled the fan and a pressure gun air connected to a compressor


    One question, how can you do 4.6 ghz with the graphics oc with a single source of 330w?

    No I understand that I mean have the whole system running with no bottom panel on like remove the fan filter and the other piece of aluminum then set back down on the cooler and see if that helps at all. Wondering if your system is having trouble getting air through the system or through the filter

    Benchmarks my system will crash, or thermal throttle. Gaming though I seem to have no issues. CPUZ however will finish without crashing or thermal throttling. Beats a stock 6700k once u hit 4.4GHz... At 4.8GHz you should theoretically beat a stock 7700k according to CPUZ scores

    No, I think it may be because of the processor, which asks me for a lot of voltage. Maybe it's the cause of those 90º.
    It has some result in 3d mark?
    This is my results in 4,1 ghz https://www.3dmark.com/fs/14224999

    Do you get 90C in Games or just benchmarks?
